Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection

Hi Guys I'm just off to Wythenshawe Hospital to book in for surgery on my aneurysm.  As I'm already on warfarin I have to go in 3 days early to come off warfarin and go on the shorter acting heparin.

The procedure will either be a dacron graft to the ascending aorta or if it may be more extensive needing a new valve and root, apparently they dont know until they get in there. 

Fingers crossed I'll be home in 2 weeks and on the mend.  Hope you're all keeping well. xxx

I will be thinking of you on the 18th and keeping you in my thoughts for an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery. Please update us as soon as you are able.  Sending lots of love.  Stay strong, you have this!
